JEA: Leaking water main causes road closures in Mandarin

Repairs to a water main in Mandarin may cause delays during the evening commute Friday.

According to JEA, crews are repairing a leaking transmission water main that has blocked lanes of San Jose Boulevard between Loretto Road and Orange Picker Road.

JEA said back-ups are expected and drivers are encouraged to be patient and watch out for workers. Crews began working on repairs Thursday night and were still working into the afternoon Friday.

To accommodate the evening traffic commute, the far right and center southbound travel lanes between Loretto and Orange Picker will be open, JEA said. The center turn lane and left southbound travel lane will remain closed.

Once the peak hour traffic dies down, the center lane will once again be closed to allow the JEA crews enough room to safely complete the repairs. JEA will have teams on site throughout the night and morning until repairs have been completed.
